This is a must-do experience if you've every even thought about wanting to see the Big Ditch as our pilot Matt referred to it. The flight itself is amazing, but then add Matt's narration and insider knowledge and a few wild stories, well, that just takes it over the top. A very interesting, informative, and a truly fun experience that we will never forget. WELL DONE!

This was my second canyon flight and definitely the best! The canyon kind of speaks for itself, but what really made it great this time was the perfect combination of excellent machines and a great pilot. Alex clearly knew his stuff and it's always a pleasure to fly with a pilot who enjoys their trade so much. Even my 70 year old mother had a great time and she normally hates flying!

Superb. It was a great family experience and we would highly recommend five star helicopters. Our pilot Scott, made it a memorable and informative flight. All the staff we dealt with were excellent.

Exceptional experience, our pilot Alex could not provide a better tour than he did. Absolutely would do this again. Everyone involved from shuttle pickup to the air field finish, OUTSTANDING.

Absolutely brilliant. If you want to see the grand canyon do it in a helicopter.
Our trip was with Travis who was very informative and fun to be with.

Absolutely stunning - pilot Alex Schmitt was excellent. A full 70 minutes in the air taking in the views of the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

The trip was amazing and a must do if you can. Transfer to the airfield was simple and easy to arrange prior to departure. The helicopter was comfortable and our pilot (Michelle) was very friendly and provided an interesting and knowledgable commentary and conversations whilst on the tour.

So now I am home and reflecting on my credit card bill it shows it was 500 for the 2 of us and frankly that was a bargain as I had expected this to be much more expensive, given the option of an 8hr round trip by bus or car this is certainly the better choice.

We both agreed that this operator lived up to its name as this was indeed a 5 star service. The pickup was on time, the whole operation very professional and there was no pressure sell to buy additional items such as photos or videos. The safety debrief was clear and they even offered travel sickness tablets and free drinks for anyone who needed it at their location in Boulder City both before and after the flight 20 min air conditioned mini bus trip.
We were fortunate enough to be seated in the front of the helicopter with 4 in the back but the view was pretty spectacular from all angles and I felt the flight was actually more like 90 minutes compared to the 70 advertised. I believe some of the shorter flights may land in the canyon but I was happy to have more flight time as it presented a great chance to take pictures and video.

If you are booking online you need to also call the local number for this operator 24hrs in advance to confirm details, including your weight but again we did this Sunday evening and they were still open as this really is a professional operation, don't forget to take photo ID with you on the day of your flight.

Please be aware that July is Monsoon season and there can be thunder storms which may lead to cancellations, so my advice would be if this is on your bucket list book it early and don't leave it to the end of your visit to Vegas as we had to reschedule due to adverse weather and delay traveling to Palm Springs for half a day. Luckily at the point of the initial pick up the operator made this clear so we used that time to drive to Hoover Dam as its literally 30 minutes away and flew the following day.

Expect to see lots of other helicopters flying around the same area, which in itself is an interesting sight but the pilot was in radio contact on a regular basis to confirm we were kept well away from other traffic.

The helicopter is small and offers excellent visibility and although we were traveling at over 100 knots it felt like 20 mph and was a lot less top gun than I had anticipated, thus you seemed to have plenty of time for questions and photos.
All passengers have headphones and microphones and we found the senior pilot had an excellent knowledge of the area and the geology, which made for a very educational visit, I can't imagine a trip to the visitor centre perched on the cliff top would offer the same amount of information if you visited by car.

So would I use 5 star again or would I recommend them, absolutely yes and on reflection this was the highlight of our 2 week holiday we covered almost 2000 miles in our Mustang and visited LA, Morro Bay, San Francisco, Yosemite, Independence, Vegas and Palm Springs but this experience is one not to be missed folks.

Absolutely fantastic tour! Great way to see the Grand Canyon and Hoover dam! Avoids taking a full day out of your Vegas trip with the long drive and the views are incredible! This is the way to see it! Highly recommend!

This was a brilliant tour and a must do if you're in Vegas. John the pilot was very informative and flew us over the Hoover Dam and Lake Meade before arriving at the Grand Canyon. We were in the air for 70 minutes exactly.

WOW !! what a fantastic trip, the people are brilliant, they had to contact me before the trip, and went to every possibility to do so as I was not registered at the hotel so they left messages everywhere . Our pilot was Jaqueline hope I spelled that correct she was amazing so knowledgeable about the area and gave us a trip of a lifetime both my daughter and I are left with a lifetime of memories .Thank you so much couldn't reccommend you enough.

Our pilot, Matt Shawver, made an incredible trip even more brilliant. Wise cracking, quick witted and a bit naughty too - he was fantastic and made our trip one that'll never be forgotten. Forget the others - get into the air with Matt, as long as you have a sense of humour. We couldn't have had a better experience. PS, Make sure he shows you Thelma and Louise International.

We signed up for this the day before and was unsure what we were in for. Turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Vegas.
We had my wife and I, my wife's best friend and our two god daughters who just turned 18. We all loved it and our pilot Alex was fantastic.
Very fun, funny and informative not too mention an excellent pilot. The only drawback was the shuttle which we had to sit on for an hour to the airport since we were the first pickup. However drivers were very friendly and efficient and we were dropped off afterwards at a place of our choosing and had the shuttle all to ourselves. Overall a great, great experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this extended trip. The customer service was excellent, they contacted me a couple of days prior to my scheduled trip as I was the only one booked on and they needed to change my tour which was completely seamless. The pick up from the hotel was great, I was slightly nervous as travelling on my own and getting picked up at 6am in the morning by a stranger in a strange country was quite daunting but I needn't have worried at all. 30 minute drive to the airport all checked in and off we went. The pilot was extremely informative all the way through and the views were stunning. I suffer from travel sicknesses but this didn't cause me any problems, very smooth ride and seemed we were going slow when we weren't! Fabulous experience that I would highly recommend. Photos on return to airport and a complimentary wine!
